|The author's surname is written first followed by a comma and the initials with full stops after them:
If there is more than one author they are listed thus (notice that the initials of the following authors come before the surnames):
Halliday, M.A.K. and R. Hasan
When there are more than two authors, ALL of them should be named (do not use et al. in the List of References).
Halliday, M.A.K., A. McIntosh and P.Strevens
Edited books have the abbreviation 'ed.' or 'eds.' after the editor's name / editors' names.
Anderman, G. and M. Rogers (eds.)
The name is followed by the year of publication in brackets and the full title of the book in Italic script (or, more unusually, underlined, from days when theses were typewritten - whichever you use be consistent). If the book has a number of editions, state the edition of the book you consulted.
Halliday, M.A.K. (1994) (2nd edition) An Introduction to Functional Grammar
If you have consulted two or more works published by an author in the same year, they are lettered a), b) and so on:
Halliday, M.A.K. (1967a) Intonation and Grammar in British English
Halliday, M.A.K. (1967b) Grammar, Society and the Noun
After the title comes the place of publication and the name of the publisher. The authors¡¦ surnames should have a hanging indent so that they are clearly visible (i.e the second line should start further to the right than the line with the author's surname - this is hard to show on this web page so the following references do not have hanging indents). A complete reference for a book will look like this:
